During this tequila tasting tour, get a firsthand peek at the traditional distillery process for the potent spirit. After pickup at your Guadalajara hotel, take a short and scenic ride to Hacienda San Jose del Refugio, for a guided tour of the factory where the famous Tequila Herradura is made. Learn how the spirit was first brewed with a peek at the original stone equipment and fermentation tanks before checking out the modern processing plant, getting an overview of the distillery’s 150-year-old history. From there, you’ll head straight to Tequila itself—dubbed one of Mexico’s “Magic Towns”—for a guided walking tour through the compact and colorful old quarters, followed by a one-of-a-kind taste test of some popular locally brewed tequila varieties.
